Summary: This game had an interesting premise but it failed to capitalize on it. We're never given important elements of the story and the main character just seems wrong. Furthermore, the game doesn't work well as a shooter and the Darkness aspect of the game, which is what makes it unique, is difficult to use and really not that interesting. Mainly the game is just boring and shooting out all the lights gets old really fast.
Summary: I picked up this game along with Resistance when I first bought my PS3 after reading a few shining reviews in the gaming mags. According to these reviews, the real selling point of this game is the engrossing plot. Unfortunately, I was never able to enjoy the plot because of the rediculous gameplay. The whole "avoid the light" thing is interesting, but the real flaw here is the game is TOO real to life.
Summary: I have never written a review but felt compelled by my disappointment. This game is bad, very bad. The whole concept is ridiculous, you spend more time shooting lights than people. It was so boring I literally could not play it past the first few levels. Save your money, don't buy this game!
Summary: The Darkness is a first person adventure game with prevalent crime and horror themes. Interactions with the environment are limited, and the mood and feel of the game leaves me with nothing but disgust. Avoid this game at all costs.
